Wendy's Birthday Gifts

Wendy requested a Hot Iron Travel Pouch for her birthday,

here is what I made for her.

This is it opened. You slide your iron in the pocket and leave the cord out.
You can wrap it around the centre (I have re-enforced the seam here) or just sort of scrunch it up and fold it closed - whatever the case the cord is separate from the irons and I have used insulated batting so it should be safe enough to pack away warm.

I had this made with time to spare...


 I made this little union jack pouch.

This piece of fabric came with a magazine.
I think it was a Crafts Beautiful... maybe.
I also used the buttons that came with the last Mollie Makes magazine.


  1. I am going to keep it in mind and will use it when i needed.

  2. On my website there's a quote from the writer Anthony Burgess: "The greatest gift is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind."

    I've always found that inspiring because the written word, as an art form, is unlike any other: movies, TV, music, they're shared experiences, but books aren't like that. The relationship between a writer and a reader is utterly unique to those two individuals. The world that forms in your head as you read a book will be slightly different to that experienced by every other reader. Anywhere. Ever. Reading is very personal, a communication from one mind to another, something which can't be exactly copied, or replicated, or directly shared.

    If I read the work of, say, one of the great Victorian novelists, it's like a gift from the past, a momentary connection to another's thoughts. Their ideas are down on paper, to be picked up by me, over a century later. Writers can speak individually to readers across a year, or ten years, or a thousand.

    That's why I love books. Send Gifts to Pakistan | Eid Gifts to Pakistan
